5.0 out of 5 stars WHERE IT ALL BEGAN......., 9 Jan. 2001
This review is from: What's Going On (Audio CD)
JOHN LENNON ONCE QUOTED"BEFORE ELVIS THERE WAS NOTHING".AND IN THE SAME RESPECTS,BEFORE 'WHAT'S GOING ON' THERE WAS NO FEEL OF SOCIAL AWARENESS IN MUSIC.WELL ATLEAST NONE WITH SUCH LUSH MUSICAL ARRANGEMENTS.LISTENING TO THE MULTI-TRACKED VOCALS IS A JOY.IT'S A FAR CRY FROM THE HIGHLY PROCESSED AND PADDED JUNK OF TODAY.THE GENIUS OF THE MAN IS HIGHLY EVIDENT.HE USED ALL ELEMENTS OF HIS RANGE TO GREAT EFFECT.YOU DON'T HAVE TO BE DEEPLY RELIGIOUS,OR TRUELY CARE ABOUT SOCIAL INJUSTICES TO FEEL THIS MUSIC,'COS IT'S UNIVERSAL. IT IS PROBABLY THE BEST ALBUM EVER BY ANY ARTIST,PERIOD.ALTHOUGH TODAY STEVIE WONDER IS THE NAME THAT MOST FREQUENTLY OCCURS AMONGST FOLLOWERS OF BLACK MUSIC,TRUE CONESSEURS WILL KNOW THAT BEFORE MARVIN GAYE THERE WAS NOTHING.JM
